    Lyft is now asking for a receipt from the driver within 24 hrs of getting car cleaned or repaired. Basically if the driver does the cleaning there may be no fee given to driver. Of course not that I would do this nor am I suggesting you do this:) but Receipt books are sold in office supply stores or anyone can make a nice letterhead on a computer. Just saying. Don't know if this is to crack down on false cleaning fees where driver makes a false report. Could it be that Lyft is hoping the driver cleaned it themselves? Lyft could still charge rider the fee & keep it for themself. 

    Had a rider puke when I first started driving on New Years Eve a few yrs back. Puked out the window doing 65 mph. Inside was easily cleaned by husband the outside was a different story. Frozen puke down passenger door, quarter panel, & trunk. Temp was approx 18/20 degrees , holiday morning. Water would freeze & also freeze my doors & locks.

I was off the road for remainder of a busy morning & needed one more ride for my $75 quest bonus. Not only should cleaning fee be assessed regardless who cleans it as it is still your time. Time is $.  Cleaning products aren't cheap, missed earnings, and loss of bonus, it all adds up. Lastly, no one wants to clean your watery, chunky, foul smelling stomach contents mixed with gastric juices out of there car. WTH? Put yourself in the drivers place. 

    Riders need to be more responsible & respectful.  As a driver I get it. You may never get sick but it happens sometimes. Most carry puke bags or something you can use. They may even be able to pull over. Unfortunately its not the best idea for a driver to offer bags to drunk riders as they enter our car.  Some riders get offended then you are given a 1 star because you offered a puke bag to a rider who  "never pukes after drinking". Everyone wants to be treated with respect but many riders are disrespectful & dont care that the car their in is that drivers personal car that they put their family in.

    are these steep prices?  I feel like $100 is pretty cheap for you to throw up in someone else's car.

    How are these triggered?  Do drivers submit the request?  I guess that'd be the only way.

    How do they measure the severity?
